Search Siren: Irresistible SEO copywriting content – Nov. 6, 2013
This tantalizing collection of SEO content comes at exactly the right time – because time’s running out!
It seems like everyone’s running out of time for blog posts this week, myself included, with a server glitch holding up the site as I type! (Tuesday night)
A few of this week’s expert posts assure me that I’m not the only one blogging out at the last minute. (And, yes, I just coined “blogging out,” meaning to freak out over a looming blog deadline. Feel free to use it … with attribution.)
To help out with the mad rush, the Internet-marketing Gods, aka HubSpot, hath released upon us this brand new collection of blog post templates. Write, my friends, write!
Oh yeah, and there’s a bunch of other helpful SEO stuff in here, too, that you can check out for yourself. Sorry, I’m totally blogging out right now!
